Once upon a time;
a king had a loyal right-hand man. The right-hand man had a saying; “It was for a good reason.”
He used this saying on any matter or occasion.
One day the king and his right-hand man were exploring the mountains.
And suddenly, the king’s hand got stuck in a stony place. They tried very hard to release the king’s hand, but unfortunately, he lost one finger.
The right-hand man said: “It was probably for a good reason.”
The king was in pain and got very angry about the right-hand man’s stupid comment and ordered to put him in a dungeon.
One year passed, and the king went to the mountain for hunting. A tribe attacked him and took the king as a prisoner.
The tribe’s belief was to sacrifice a human once a year for their Gods.
But concerning their Gods, that person had to be completely healthy.
When they saw the king doesn’t have a finger, they let him free.
Then the king remembered his right-hand man’s words when he was in pain of losing a finger. “It was probably for a good reason.”
The king ordered to free his right-hand man.
When the king told the right-hand man, tribe’s story, he said: “It was probably for a good reason.”
The king said: “Why?”
The right-hand man said: “If I weren’t in jail, I would be on that hunting with you, and the tribe would sacrifice me after finding you unhealthy.”
Many things happen for a good reason, and we don’t understand it at that painful, challenging moment.
